This book is by far the best book that explains PTSD and combat stress. Do not be apprehensive that it is written by an officer, he knows his stuff. He also coordinates with a 1SGT from Vietnam to relate to the readers. This book is a must for anyone returning from Iraq/Afghanistan or combat, new or old. Please spread the word about this book, as I know Vietnam Vets did not have this type of resource! If you are not sure if you need to read this book, then you probably do, no harm done. PTSD is [...]

On the back cover, one reviewer compares this book to John Denver's lyrics about "coming home to a place you've never been before." I can't say it any better. Colonel Hoge gets it -- he understands PTSD and its related disorders like no other author. Most importantly, he knows how to connect with and get through to those suffering from PTSD. I've read a lot of books while trying to understand my own PTSD and how it affects those around me -- but his is the first that made me say "This is it. I u [...]

Bleh. Simplistic and not very enlightening but then again, it was written by the bane of a soldier's existence- an Army psych doctor. One of these days I pray the military writes about a different type of PTSD, one that affected me and my friends, where combat was not our stressor our leadership was. We call it the Groundhog Day Effect- same crap, day in and day out. Senior leaders there because they missed the boat for getting a right arm patch and couldn't retire without one. COLs getting DSCs [...]

I knew going into the book that much of the information was outdated, as psychologists now use the DSM-V in lieu of the DSM-IV used in this book. With that said I thought that maybe many of the tools and coping mechanisms suggested in the book. On that note I was disappointed, Col. Hoge recommends exercise that require you to actively seek out stress triggers. I feel this to be an unnecessary and counterproductive approach. Veterans would be better served to having coping techniques to deal with [...]

This is probably one of the most useful books about ptsd I have read.Although the focus is American so that a proportion of the book is specific to that national context and the US system of veteran's care the basic issues and principles are the same for all combat veterans. The book focuses on a system called LANDNAV as a self directed way of handling the difficulties that arsie for sufferers of ptsd and it's directed specifically towards combat induced ptsd.With the dilution of focus now appar [...]

While primarily aimed at service members and veterans, this book contains information that is invaluable for anyone dealing with PTSD and anyone whose loved one is struggling with PTSD. Col. Hoge explains the physiological basis for the cognitive, emotional, psychological and behavioral reactions that can result for PTSD and how they are related to the skills and attributes that are vital for the soldier during war. “Every 'symptom' of PTSD stems from things your body normally does in response [...]

This is a must "listen" book from audible! Easier than reading it! Sooo on target! If you are a warrior, you get this bookif you're not, you probably won't "get it" as much, but, good for all either way.ratings tend to reflect thisd in fact, he talks directly to this point! BLUFif you picked it up, it's your starting point!

I read this book for a class I am doing a library instruction class for. The class is for veterans who are first-time college students. This book is the common reader for the course. This book seemed to provide good tips for veterans after returning home. It will be interesting to see how they liked it.

I found the information straight forward and easy to understand. Each Chapter was set up in an easy to follow manner. There is no doctor gibberish going on. Anybody can understand the language in this book. I would have given it a fifth star if it didn't read so much like a text book including chapter summaries. I would have also like a longer chapter on how family members could help.

Hogue has done a masterful job of dissecting the contemporary effects of war on our beleaguered warriors.
